As I haven´t been to Garmisch Partenkirchen for almost twenty years I was instantly intrigued by the idea of going on a guided Segway tour when I stumbled upon the Alpenmove leaflet at the reception of our hotel just round the corner of the ice arena.

I called the mobile number stated and a sympathetic, humorous chap talked me through the different tours they offer (they are offering different tours, ranging from 1,5 up to 4 hours) and – most importantly – that I shouldn´t worry too much about my overly anxious partner not willing to join as they attach great importance to a solid training session for beginners like her.

The shop is located in the ground floor of the ice arena at the corner facing the parking lot, easy to find and parking is pleasure for those driving here with the car.

Inside the place is really tidy, the Segways (they only have the cool H2 off-road ones!!) sit in a row as they charge, we were to do some paperwork first (we just had to sign the usual stuff for the insurance as in any rental situation) and Mr. Beier – or Norbert as he introduced himself as we got our proper, trust building Bavarian handshake from him – the shop owner, offered a nice Espresso which we gladly accepted.

The Segways were in an excellent condition and Norbert was the most patient and pleasant guide one can think of. He is a local and knows every little corner around town, hence you get your fair share of city guide trivia so nicely recited in his cute Bavarian accent that you´d like to hug him all the way through.

We chose the “Sport & Olympia-Tour” which meant 2 hours of highly entertaining Olympic history including the famous ski jump arena and other locations reminiscing the 1936 Winter Olympics.

It was a fantastic afternoon and the fact that the weather was so super nice was just an added bonus.

As promised on the phone Norbert´s empathic and experienced ways during the training session even managed to persuade my notoriously anxious partner to give it a try, though she almost stalled as usual as she felt insecure during the first seconds standing on a Segway for the first time in her life.

But after only 20 minutes of hands on, professional training she went like "Actually that’s quite cool, I´d love to have one of those to drive to the office!".
After the tour I heard from missy "That was sooooo awesome, I´m soooooooo glad I did that!"

And what can I say? So am I!!!!

I highly recommend Alpenmove to anyone who´d like to discover Garmisch Partenkirchen in an unusual, highly individual and not least environmentally beneficial way.
